I know that I haven't posted much to my blog recently.

I'm sure you will understand.

........ Sadly my Dad passed away yesterday in the small hours of the morning. 

It's been a shock although we knew that he had suspected lung cancer in the middle of December, it wasn't until the middle of January that it was confirmed and we were advised that there was no treatment 3 weeks ago.  However as it was slow growing he should have months and months.  

Sadly he contracted pneumonia last week and just didn't have the strength to fight it. 

We will miss him loads.

Something For........Father's Day

Remember this tie?  I used it on my last card, a baby card!  Not surprising really as it's a set called Something For Baby. Isn't great when you can use your sets for other occassions? When I used the tie last time I thought it would make a super male card.  So here it is.

I used the In Colours.  You know they are all going to go together so no extra thought required.  Its easy peasy.

I stamped my ties on Whisper White and die cut an extra one using the Baby's First Framelits.  I cut the little heart and added the tie then popped it up on Dimensionals.

I added a little extra texture by scoring three lines along the top.  I then matted this onto Lost Lagoon card stock.  I turned to Crazy About You to add my sentiment.  This set is in the Spring/Summer Catalogue and is available in wood, clear and photopolymer.  I used the photopolymer which made it so easy to line up.

Here's a pic of the middle.  You can't see easily from the photo but I added the scored lines down the side of the whisper white panel. 

I know it's a long time till Father's Day but that's what the card spoke to me.  Does that happen to you?

I'm looking out on a very snowy scene with us today and cold North Sea winds.  It's Brrrrrr!  

Stay cosy and keep crafting!.  x
